The Magic of Oz by L Frank Baum
In the latest of the Oz books that I’ve read the people of Oz are trying to figure out what to give Ozma for her birthday while the evil Nome king tries to take over Oz once again. What I appreciated about this book is that we were only introduced to one new character. It does seem like in each book we get a couple new characters. Instead we mostly followed some characters that we already knew but hadn’t spent that long with. I enjoyed this and although it involved a quest and traveling through unknown lands, it did seem like this book had actual problems the characters had to solve rather than just meeting odd individuals. Like all the oz books it was nothing really remarkable yet totally enjoyable.
